The Economist’s “Lexington” columnist checks in with the Old Order Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Many of them object to being photographed, which puts them at odds with the state’s new voter ID law. A fine exploration of the Amish stance on local politics (independent schools) and national issues (Obamacare, agricultural policies).
Our favorite line: “Though I have only met a handful of Amish, they have all been good at giving the impression that they find non-Amish visitors rather comical.”
